    Morning,
    After buying my 2004 Tacoma from my father-in-law I detailed the engine compartment and in doing so noticed a considerable build up around the battery/inner fender/pwr steering pump and A/C pump. I could not find active leak...so shrugged shoulders and finished cleaning. Now just 2 months later I look and there is a slight build up again in the same area?? Feels sticky, not like oil or powersteering fluid (no drops on driveway). Could this be a leaky A/C pump or line (air blow fairly cold)? Is freon sticky??:confused:

    hahahaha Originally by the title I was thinking this was something you should go to the doctor for.

    What color is the build up?
